Strickland Campaign Statement On Portman, Trump & Judge Curiel

In response to a new Washington Post report in which Senator Rob Portman disparages Donald Trump’s attacks against Judge Curiel while continuing to endorse Trump for President, today Strickland campaign spokesman David Bergstein issued the following statement:

“Senator Portman’s simultaneous endorsement and condemnation of Donald Trump is exactly the kind of spineless, self-interested politics that Ohioans hate about Washington insiders. Each day Portman twists himself further and further into a tortuous pretzel as he stubbornly continues to back Trump’s campaign. It’s all more proof that Portman is the kind of D.C. politician who will say and do anything to try and help himself, and why Ohio’s working people can’t trust Portman to look out for us.”
